Swifts and The Moon Mug

45.00

A hand thrown and hand painted mug with a silhouette of Vaux swifts in flight.  Every year, the swifts migrate through the pacific northwest, stopping each night to roost in chimneys and hollowed out logs.  One such roost is the large chimney at Chapmen Elementary in north west Portland.  It's long been decommissioned and kept just as a way stop for the tiny birds.  As the sun sets, they begin to swarm around the chimney in a larger and larger tornado of birds until finally in one long spectacular group dive, they enter the chimney for the night.  

 Each mug is made on the potter's wheel from durable stoneware and high fired in an electric kiln. Each swift is hand painted.    Stamped on the bottom with the makers mark, tb.  Dishwasher and microwave safe.  Your choice of glaze: amber yellow, pale celadon green, speckled cream, or classic white.  Each mug is handmade so slight variations in size and shape are to be expected and embraced as part of the handmade process.   

Ready to ship mugs will be sent out fridays.  If order numbers exceed stock, mugs will be made to order. Please allow 1-3 weeks for making and shipping. Thank you so much for supporting handmade!
